Mariners make a stunning comeback to reach the playoffs

The Seattle Mariners made a remarkable comeback to beat Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday in an MLB playoff game. There was also a violent clash that saw Blue Jays’ George Springer taken off the field by Mariners’ Bo Bichette.

  1. P. Crawford had hit a blooper in shallow center field, and as they went for the ball Bichette’s elbow touched Springer’s neck.

Bichette continued to play for the rest of the game while Springer left in the eighth.

Blue Jays interim manager John Schneider said that the 33-year-old was doing OK after the game.

Schneider stated in the post-match press conference, “He’s going be evaluated for several different things, and he said some nice words to his teammates just now.” “So, we’ll learn more in the coming days.”

Springer’s injury exacerbated an already difficult night for Toronto in Game 2 at Rogers Centre. The Marines overcame a seven-run deficit and advanced to the second round.

MLB.com reports that the comeback was the second largest in playoff history, the largest on the road for a team, and the largest in a series-clinching match.

After five innings, the Blue Jays led 8-1. However, the Mariners scored four runs in the sixth inning and four more in the eighth to tie the game at 9-9. Cal Raleigh was credited with the winning run when second baseman Adam Frazier doubled in the ninth inning.

Next up, the Mariners will host the Houston Astros for the best-of-5 series.
